Thank you for visiting my site and for your interest in my campaign for Bellevue City Council. I am so proud to have raised my family and run a successful business in Bellevue. It has been an honor to serve our City on the Parks Board and volunteer my time with our schools, youth theater and sports, and Overlake Auxiliaries. Now I want to continue to work for you on the Bellevue City Council.

As your Council member, I will work every day to position Bellevue for the future while staying sensitive to the needs of our community including safe neighborhoods, a strong local economy, and transit that makes sense.

Lynne Robinson was my mother's in-home physical therapist and was very helpful to our family during my mother's time in Bellevue.

I strongly urge you to support her as a candidate for today. Please forward this to any other Bellevue voters who care about the future of the city! Bellevue needs people like Lynne!
